Ever-flowing Stream Of Grace

(Soar on Wings Like Eagles)

Soar on Wings Like Eagles: Isaiah 40:31 says, "But those wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint"

These Christians "...soar on wings like eagles." There have been many wonderful dramatic writings and teachings on this passage of Scripture. Albert Barnes has one picture that is worthy of consideration as well. "The picture is simply derived from the fact that the eagle rises on the most vigorous and powerful wings of any bird. It is my understanding that it ascends apparently further toward the sun than any other bird. This figure of writing, therefore, denotes strength and vigor of purpose; The writer is denoting an elevation that is high above this world; representing communion with God and nearness to His heart."

Bonnie and I were taken out to eat by a couple in their eighties. This pastor is a Spirit filled Baptist who had a great visitation of the Holy Spirit upon his heart after being bedridden from an accident. He had shared with me in the past of this mighty move of God on his life and how the Lord just gave him revelation after revelation from the written Word of God.

This happened at a very low time of his life, but God met with him and I have observed his life long enough to know that he has fellowship with the Lord. His life radiates a trust, a strengthening as he walks in his calling. Please note I said as he walks in his calling, not what he tells God he should be doing or what people in the church tell him he should be doing.

Your physical afflictions can not keep you down, even if you are only given the privilege to pray and no time or strength for anything else, you can enjoy God's "Ever-flowing Grace."
